Congrats to Claude Gosselin, Walter Ostrom, Edward Burtynsky, David P. Silcox, Roy H. Vickers

Howdy!

Again, catching up on yesterday's news, Claude Gosselin, Walter Ostrom, Edward Burtynsky, David P. Silcox, and Roy H. Vickers all got named by the Governor General to the Order of Canada. If you haven't guessed yet, they are are were named because of their involvement in the Visual Arts (although with M. Gosselin and Mr. Silcox, I'd suggest that they change it to writing).

And as an aside, it has been a pretty good year for M. Gosselin, I overheard some gossip and have not confirmed it, but apparently he was extremely bitter about not being named director of the Musee d'Art Contemporain, but now he got himself a Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts, and the Order of Canada. I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that the Ordre du Quebec and a Prix du Quebec ain't too far off, and then he can retire a hppy man (because the Prix du Quebec is twice as valuable as the Governor General's award).
